The 33-year-old Duke of Sussex made a special announcement about the Invictus Games, despite being on his honeymoon in Canada.


The news was shared via Kensington Palace's official Twitter account as well as the Invictus Games Foundation account: the 5th Invictus Games will be hosted in The Hague.

The foundation's chairman, Sir Keith Mills, thanked 'everyone for the extremely positive reactions received after the launch,' and added that it would be a 'topnotch event in 2020.'

As reported by Marie Claire, Prince Harry and his bride Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will also attend the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney later this year.


The event is scheduled to take place from the 20th to 27th October, and the aim this year is to use the power of sport once again 'to inspire recovery and support rehabilitation' for veterans wounded in combat.

The multi-sport event was created by the Duke of Sussex in 2014 to allow wounded veterans to compete in wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball and indoor rowing
